“This was probably pretty typical behavior for this so-called "caregiver." She's no doubt done stuff like this befor; but this time she miscalculated.and the child she was abusing died.”

“It's been almost 33 years since the inauguration of Uncle Ronnie and the beginning of the decline of the American middle class. Are they finally catching on to the Republican/Corporate/Fascist agenda? If so---but I'll believe it when it really happens---it's about time.”

“Not necessarily. Human infants certainly display a wide range of emotion. It's unlikely that they are capable, at that stage of development, of a conscious awareness of their own emotions. They just "emote." So do animals.”

“Don't jump into a cage filled with humans---particularly human males---if you are obviously different from them in race, gender, or sexual preference. Human beings are notorious for not recognizing the humanity of other humans.”

“No intelligent person expects monkeys to evolve into human beings. Non-human primates are on their own evolutionary path. Who knows? With us gone---and we are on our way out as a species--they might eventually fill that niche by evolving higher IQs. But that won't make them human. And, please, favor us with a quote from a well-known atheist who equates monkeys with humans.”

“Your post reminds me of one of my favorite quotes about animals:
'For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the Earth'
-- Henry Beston”

“Will they? Or will they just keep blaming Obama, the Democrats, and "big government"? I dunno... I'm not sure even a catastrophe could knock these people off their positions. They have turned their politics into a religion or, at the very least, have grafted the two together. They will resort to the most outrageous contortions of logic to rationalize both their religious and political beliefs.”

“As I said, when their Welfare check doesn't come in the mail and when their SNAP card won't work and when their WIC certificates become worthless they will begin to question who are their friends and who is their master. Having an empty belly and an unpaid lot rent and trailer payment will perhaps bring them towards the reality of who is master and who is slave.”
